Private funeral services have been held for Rita Brody, 88, of Boynton Beach, Fla., formerly of Jersey City and Tenafly. She passed away peacefully on April 4. Rita was born in Jersey City to Sol and Peggy Schustrin. Rita was the wife of her late husband of 68 years, Harvey, and was predeceased by her sisters, Carol Starr and Libby Shapiro. Rita was an avid card player, baker, golfer and returner. Together with Harvey and her parents, she was a co-founder of Congregation B’nai Jacob in Jersey City and a president of the Jersey City chapter of ORT America. Her greatest joy, however, was her time spent with her grandchildren who called her Meme. She is survived by her three children, Jan (Julia), Jill (Richard), and Dean (Debra), eight grandchildren Melissa, Steven, Gregg (and fiancé Rachel), Daniel (and girlfriend Arielle), Perri, Rob, Cameron and Adam, and many nieces and nephews. Services arranged by the Gutterman and Musicant Jewish Funeral Directors, Hackensack
